HBOWatch Movie Review: “Assassin’s Creed”

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Assassin’s Creed”

To say that the genre of feature films based on video games has a problematic history would be an understatement. It is filled with colossal critical failures, including Super Mario Bros. and Street Fighter. Some of the more tolerable entries in the field were the serviceable Lara Croft (2001), which included a swaggering turn by Angelina Jolie and a fun supporting performance by a pre-Bond Daniel Craig. Then there was Resident Evil (2002), which was decent, if not great, but which has suffered from diminishing returns on its sequels. Over the years, I kept waiting for the film that would do for video games what Richard Donner’s Superman...

Danny McBride talks to EW about why Season Two of VICE PRINCIPALS will be the last

Danny McBride talks to EW about why Season Two of VICE PRINCIPALS will be the last

Danny McBride and Walton Goggins have appeared together on EW: The Show to discuss the return of Vice Principals to HBO. Season Two is already looking promising from a very action-packed trailer and an equally action-packed first episode. McBride discussed in the interview that he wanted to give viewers a full and complete story, something with a clear beginning, middle and end and he has decided to do this by completing this story at the end of the current season. He also went on to discuss how he “had been burned” by TV shows in the past that he invested a lot of time in only to see dwindle out in later seasons saying that...

Vice Principals Season Two Premiere: “Tiger Town”

Vice Principals Season Two Premiere: “Tiger Town”

Vice Principals is back on our screens so all must be right in the world. After an explosive Season One finale and a very tantalizing trailer for Season Two, the anticipation for the premiere episode was sky high as we see how Neal Gamby is handling being shot in the shoulder and hip by a masked assassin. First of all, almost everything that we saw in the trailer happened in the very first episode which is a welcome change of pace from episode director David Gordon Green. A critique of Season One was that there were too many episodes that passed by without moving the narrative along, however if this first episode is anything to go by then...

Damon Lindelof’s Next Project Officially is…WATCHMEN

Damon Lindelof’s Next Project Officially is…WATCHMEN

This site dropped way back in June 2017 that Damon Lindelof was eying up WATCHMEN as his next HBO project. At that time he was focused on basking in the afterglow of wrapping up the final season of THE LEFTOVERS. To each their own, but as one not familiar with the comic tale of The Comedian, Dr. Manhattan and the bunch I would have settled for more LEFTOVERS. Nevertheless, Lindelof has confirmed that he has moved on to the next course and it is, in fact, the adaptation of the Alan Moore/Dave Gibbons “superhero crime noir” story. Below is just how he decided to tell us. I didn’t, at first, understand why that image was pertinent, but I...

Thanks To THE DEUCE Potato Soup Will Never Be The Same!

In Episode 2 of THE DEUCE Candy (Maggie Gyllenhaal) fills in for a girl who can’t make it to her filming session. It seems a film entrepreneur is making an adult film in his basement and Candy takes the opportunity. The way the couple of scenes of the show are shot you can see that Candy is taking in all she can about filmmaking. She finds interest in what the key & fill lights are for as well as the reflective sheet. The importance of the scenes in the show indicate Candy’s willingness to always make the situation better for herself and her learning about making films just might advance herself along. Of course, viewers are probably...

The Deuce: “Show and Prove”

The Deuce: “Show and Prove”

  Already approved for another season, the Deuce continues to amaze audiences and we are only two episodes into it. Bringing light to the grimy streets of 1970s NYC, so far we have been submersed in the popularity of pimping and prostitution.  With this episode, we see women working the streets and trying to find a way to work more money into their pockets.  When you have a pimp taking part of the cut, it doesn’t leave you with much. You could argue the main point of this episode, “Show and Prove,” was for women to show up and prove they could do it for themselves.  In the time when prostitutes were routinely...

HBO Will Film Multiple “Game of Thrones” Endings

HBO Will Film Multiple “Game of Thrones” Endings

After seven year, everyone is desperate to know how Game of Thrones will come to an end next season, and HBO wants to make sure that no one will get spoiled. In past years, keeping the plot of upcoming Thrones seasons secret has been a challenge– dedicated fans and paparazzi have stalked the show’s production, going to extreme lengths to spy on scenes being filmed and release photos and videos to the public. Last year, we had pictures of Jon Snow petting a dragon and throttling Theon Greyjoy months before the show aired. A year before that, we watched a blurry video of the Tower of Joy battle, as the enthused man behind the...

HBOWatch Movie Review: “La La Land”

HBOWatch Movie Review: “La La Land”

  From the Director of the critically acclaimed and Oscar-winning film, Whiplash comes Damien Chazelle’s follow-up film La La Land, a personalized love letter to Hollywood and jazz music with a dash of realism about the movie industries volatile nature. La La Land has been celebrated and praised unanimously for being a genre-breaking musical/drama/comedy/romance film with whispers of surrealism and notes of despair. With a plethora of Oscar nominations and Emma Stone taking the prize for her performance, there is no denying the success of this film. Under the ruse of a musical, the story takes us into the belly of the beast with...

Game of Thrones Beer Stein Serve Up Nectar of the Gods

Game of Thrones Beer Stein Serve Up Nectar of the Gods

“That’s what I do: I drink and I know things.” – Tyrion Lannister Would you like to drink and know things too? We just found a couple of handsome beer steins from a company called FUN that will get you there. We got ahold of the Baratheon (that’s the King from season 1, the Stag) and a cup featuring the Lannisters (the family with the incest and the dwarf for those uninitiated).  Here they are in all of their glory: The stein looks great and has a top that has a ton of detail on it. It’s pretty heavy but not cumbersome. It’s sure to impress the ladies (and sers) in the room. It seems about the right size for a...

George R. R. Martin Producing WHO FEARS DEATH For HBO

George R. R. Martin Producing WHO FEARS DEATH For HBO

We have known about the development deal that Song of Fire and Ice author George R. R. Martin has had with HBO for a while now. We were beginning to wonder if anything was going to become of it beyond the grandiose GAME OF THRONES spinoff spec scripts. He has latched on to another SF&F writer’s work and we will see if it ever comes to the network. Target as a potential series will be writer Nnedi Okorafo’s WHO FEARS DEATH. It is an award-winning book from 2010 that takes place in a future Sudan, Africa. The deal has only been confirmed by Okorafo until now. HBO just recently acknowledged that the concept is indeed in development...

PERRY MASON With Downey Jr. Gets New Writers

PERRY MASON With Downey Jr. Gets New Writers

It is interesting to note that the PERRY MASON production with Robert Downey Jr. didn’t die. If you recall from a previous news item Nic Pizzolato was to move on from his signature series to flesh out a story for Erle Stanley Gardner’s iconic criminal defense lawyer. That ended once the third season of TRUE DETECTIVE came into being. Pizzolato’s attention is all about that anthology series and not a Mason tale. The concept to bring the character back, however, was Robert Downey Jr.’s idea. He has now found new writers to take on the character that started in novels and went on to radio and film adaptations before actor Raymond...

HBO Takes 19 Creative Emmys this Year

September is Emmy season when Hollywood awards its own yet again. In fact, it goes overboard with all the awards it gives itself.

Insecure: “Hella Disrespectful” & Season Finale “Hella Perspective”

Insecure: “Hella Disrespectful” & Season Finale “Hella Perspective”

  With the season coming to a close, it’s time to have our last check in on Issa, Molly, Lawrence, and the whole crew. It’s been a HELLA season, and there have been quite a few ups and downs for everyone involved. We gotta wonder where they left off and what might be to come next season.   Episode 7: “Hella Disrespectful” What’s the best way to stir the drama?  Put everyone in the same room at a dinner party. This week is nothing short of panic inducing stress from the tension lingering in that dining room.  Molly (Yvonne Orji) is trying to become  an equal in her work life but has to sit and...
